Support Groups


Although a diagnosis of ITP is rare, you’re not alone. PDSA Support Groups across the United States and Canada are there for anyone looking for support in coping with ITP—and new groups continue to form. Listed below are existing groups with scheduled meeting dates.

No group listed in your area? Consider forming a group and becoming a facilitator. We’ll provide a New Facilitator Kit to help you start a PDSA Support Group.

For information about an existing group or to form a new one, contact Jody Shy at jshy@pdsa.org or contact PDSA, 1.87.PLATELET (877.528.3538).

The contact information in this section is provided as a service EXCLUSIVELY to patients and families. IT IS NOT TO BE USED FOR COMMERCIAL GAIN IN ANY FORM OR FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE UNLESS STATED IN WRITING FROM PDSA. Interested parties other than patients and families should contact pdsa@pdsa.org for more information.
